Promoting Foster Family Recruitment

The Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF), in conjunction with Foster Kansas Kids, invited all Kansas legislators to participate in public service announcements (PSAs), urging Kansans to consider opening their homes and hearts to children in need of temporary placement.

I am proud to lend my voice in encouraging Kansas citizens to consider becoming foster parents. I along with 24 other legislators and Lieutenant Governor Jeff Colyer took part in the effort.

This initiative is part of the Foster Kansas Kids campaign, which launched in May. The campaign is designed to recruit potential foster families, provide support to current foster families and increase the public’s awareness about the need for temporary, stable homes for children coming into care in Kansas.
